Read from August 17 to 24, 2012

The writing was beautiful at times, but I also felt that it kept me from getting as close as I'd like to be to the story. Kenzie existed in such a vivid world, but I felt like I never go to see it as much as I wanted to. I'd feel myself getting close to the character in a moment, only to be yanked out of it and thrown into an entirely new scene when the last one wasn't finished yet. Maybe that was the author's intent, but it left me feeling like the story was just beyond my reach, the characters almost close enough to touch but not quite. It was like reading through smeared glass, or watching something happen but not being able to hear everything clearly. I expected to connect with the story much more than I was ultimately able to.
